Continue on your tour with a drive through the Onomea Scenic Route, a 4-mile section of the original old highway punctuated with historic wooden bridges, waterfalls, and lush tropical foliage. Whilst you are here, enjoy a deli-style picnic lunch whilst admiring the views. Leaving Onomea behind, drive to Akaka Falls for a short walk through the fern forest studded with orchids to see this majestic beauty. Enjoy expansive views of the falls tumbling 440 feet.
Finally, hop into a four-wheel-drive van for a scenic drive down into Waipio Valley. Known as the Valley of the Kings, Waipio Valley is a place of impossibly steep cliffs carved by waterfalls cascading more than a thousand feet to the valley floor. Once inhabited by thousands and now still home to taro farms and wild horses, Waipio Valley is a lush, mystical place rarely visited. Explore the valley before making the steep drive back out and returning to Kona.
